1968, Forty Years Later: Tariq Ali Looks Back

We continue our series “1968, Forty Years Later” with the political
activist, novelist and historian, Tariq Ali.

Tariq Ali’s interview with Democracy Now! was really quite interesting. It does make one wonder– what has happened to all of the rage? Where are the protesters and the radicals? What has happened to all of the struggle to change the way in which our nation and our world is headed?  Personally, I feel there are simply too many distractions out there in the world for people to really come together to affect any sort of positive change.  So many people are working more than one job, trying to make ends meet for themselves and their families.  People are concerned with gas prices, food prices, health care, and so many other things that they just don’t have the time to get involved with any movement.  There are many people who aren’t happy with the current state of our county and the rest of the world, and I guess we all do what we can when we have the time. It seems difficult for those people who want change and want to make a difference to get organized and rally together to make any sort of real and lasting impact.  Peace 🙂
